Information about School Card Senior (Gymnasiekort)
  • Lost or defective School Card Senior

    How to do if you have lost your School card senior, you can read more about here.

    If the card is defective or damaged in some other way and cannot be used, it should be replaced immediately. Contact your school office for a replacement. Until a new School Card Senior has been arranged, you pay for your travel yourself. 

  • For a new academic year

    You get your School Card senior the first days of school. You who already go to school should save your old School Card Senior over the summer. Until you receive your new card, the following applies:

    • If you start year 1 of gymnasiet, you travel on the temporary travel document that is sent to you together with the admission letter.
      • You must print out the temporary travel document in order for it to be valid on the journey.
    • If you start year 2 or 3 in gymnasiet, you travel on your old School Card senior for the first two weeks. That card does not work in the card reader, but you must show it to the bus driver.

    If you lose your School Card Senior during the summer, you can pick up a new card from the school office. You will need to pay a service charge when you collect the new School Card Senior and you will also have to pay for your journeys until you receive your new card.

  • Confiscated School Card Senior

    If you have not signed your School Card Senior properly, your School Card Senior may be confiscated. This means you will have to collect it from our Customer Service at Resecentrum in Örebro.

    Bring the receipt issued by the ticket inspector along with valid photo ID. If a School Card Senior is misused it will not be returned.

    You may have to wait one working day before your School Card Senior is available for collection from our Customer Center, and we will not reimburse any expenses resulting from confiscation.
